Denis Zabavsky - Folk-Avantgarde SuperDrive [top04]


Published January 1, 2008


We first met Denis Zabavsky at Glinka Museum of Musical Culture. The evening was dedicated to a balalaika's music, and among the performers were Denis together with his adorable wife Elena (playing on domra). We were really stunned by his style - emotional and soulful improvisations on balalaika shows us the new capabilities of this amazing instrument. It was a pure demonstration of virtuosity, but the music was wonderful by itself!

Denis Zabavsky is a professionally trained musician, he successfully graduated from Gnesin Academy of Music in 2005. He was a member of numerous folk-collectives, even the State Academic Ensemble Russia and performed live in various cities and towns of Russia and other countries.

This recording is a compilation of tunes, composed and recorded by Denis, his wife Elena and vocalist Ljubov Korneeva: a perfect mixture of mighty traditional Russian music and an amazing virtuosity of balalaika avant-playing. We never thought that this instrument is so great!

Denis Zabavsky: balalaika, jaw harp
